Leonardo Da Vinci Personal Accessories - Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) is celebrated for his scientific contributions. Da Vinci left a large body of drawings (almost 2,500) that record his ideas, most of which are gathered into notebooks, or, codices. The Forster Codices (ca. 1500) are a collection of five notebooks by Da Vinci. I adapted these illustrations and designs to create a line of personal accessories for the Museum.
